Super telescope finds hundreds of previously undetectable galaxies

Galaxies discoveredA South African radio telescope has revealed hundreds of galaxies in a tiny corner of the universe where only 70 had been seen before.
The images, taken by MeerKAT telescope, are an indication of the detail the southern hemisphere's most powerful radio telescope may be able to provide when it is fully operational later this year.

At present, 16 of MeerKAT's 64 dishes are scanning the skies. As well as its scientific goals, the project serves as a technological demonstration of South Africa's capability to host the Square Kilometer Array, a huge multiradio-telescope project to be built in Australia and South Africa comprising dozens of dishes.

16-million-year-old planet with three suns discovered

16 million year old planetThe far-off planet, located about 320 light years from Earth in the constellation Centaurus, is unlike any other known world, scientists say.

Anyone on the planet — if it harbored life, which scientists don't think is possible — would either experience constant daylight or enjoy triple sunrises and sunsets each day, depending on the season, which last longer than human lifetimes.

Large Hadron Collider finds three new particles, confirms fourth

Hadron Collider finds three new particlesEurope's largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider, is back in action. According to two newly published studies, its latest round of experiments yielded three new "exotic" particles and confirmed the existence of a fourth.

The newly identified particles are considered "exotic" because they contain four quarks, the building blocks of all matter. Particle physicists used to believe all particles were composed of mesons, a quark-antiquark pair, or baryons, three quarks -- but no more than three quarks. A litany of discoveries have shown otherwise.

Juno probe enters into orbit around Jupiter

Juno probeThe US space agency has successfully put a new probe in orbit around Jupiter.

The Juno satellite, which left Earth five years ago, had to fire a rocket engine to slow its approach to the planet and get caught by its gravity.  A sequence of tones transmitted from the spacecraft confirmed the braking manoeuvre had gone as planned.

China completes world's largest alien-hunting telescope

China completes world's largest telescopeET, phone Beijing.

The final triangular panel in the world’s largest radio telescope was lowered into place this weekend as Chinese officials amped up the hunt for alien life.

If intelligent beings lurk in the universe, the spectacular new Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) is uniquely equipped to find them, promised Peng Bo, director of the National Astronomical Observation (NAO).

Chemists unveil cheaper, more efficient carbon capture technology

Carbon technologyA team of scientists in England have found a better way to capture carbon from power plant emissions.

The key to their new and improved technique is patented carbon-derived biomass material called Starbons. Starbons, which was pioneered a decade ago by scientists at the University of York, is made using biomass waste like food peelings and seaweed. Its key attribute is its porosity. Lots of tiny holes allow Starbons to capture lots of CO2.

NASA's Juno spacecraft enters Jupiter's magnetic field

Jupiter's magnetic fieldNearly five years ago, NASA's Juno spacecraft left Earth headed for Jupiter. This week, it reached one of its first scientific milestones -- entering the gas giant's magnetosphere, or magnetic field.

"We've just crossed the boundary into Jupiter's home turf," Scott Bolton, the mission's principal investigator and a scientist at the Southwest Research Institute, confirmed in a news release. "We're closing in fast on the planet itself and already gaining valuable data."
